Baby Gil is 10 months old!
We were a month late on his 9 month check up (because of traveling down south), so I actually know his weight and height. He is 17 lbs 10 oz (11%), 29 inches (57%), and his head is 44 cm (14%). He is still a little guy! He has a few 9 month outfits he can wear, but he is almost totally into 12 month clothes. He is still in size 3 diapers and his one size diapers are still set pretty small, although we are in the second size of Thirsties DuoWrap covers.
Since we got back from vacation, sleep has been pretty good. He takes two two hour naps a day. He goes to sleep so easily! He is getting really close to sleeping through the night. Okay, I'll go ahead and say it--he is mostly sleeping through the night now! But that happened the day after he turned 10 months old, and I'm a few days late on this post. We had to do some cry it out to get there, but I have dropped the dream feed.
Gil LOVES food. I still can't even believe that. He prefers the pouches to being spoon fed. He sucks those things down and likes all of the different flavors. He also loves to eat real food. We break off little pieces of whatever we are eating (as long as its not spicy or doesn't have avocado--he has reactions to avocado), and he loves it.
He is moving all over the place. He has started standing up by himself for several seconds at a time. He can go from sitting to standing and then back down again, without holding on to anything! Jack started walking right when he turned 11 months old, and I have a feeling that Gil will be similar.
This month he said his first word, Dada (why is that always the case?!?). He still has yet to say Mama, but hopefully it will come soon. He also likes to wave, but isn't a fan of clapping.
He is starting to show his little personality. He wants to play with whatever big brother is playing with. He does not like if you stop him from doing what he wants to be doing. He loves to snuggle and give kisses. He is our sweet, silly Gilly monster!
Likes: cuddles, playing with Jack's toys, food!
Dislikes: not getting to do what he wants
Happy 10 months, Baby Gil! We love you!
